"VOLCA MADNESS" PRESENTATION

We are heading back to Globe Hall on Wednesday June 8th for this Meetup. The theme is "Volca Madness" and there will be presentations on the Korg Volca series mini synths. These synths might be mini but they are power packed, battery powered, support MIDI - and at only $159 are quite affordable as far as hardware synths go. The series includes Volca Beats, Volca Bass, Volca Keys, Volca Sample, and the soon to be released Volca FM.

There will be presentations offering an overview of each of the currently released models as well as how to sync them. Chris Frain will also be our performer of the night doing set with a number of Volcas.

If you have a Volca, bring it so after the presentations we'll have more for people to checkout. EVERYBODY bring headphones with 3.5mm stereo mini jack.

VOLCA PERFORMANCE BY CHRIS FRAIN

Chris Frain currently lives in Boulder, CO. Idiosyncratic to a fault, his music sits in the uncomfortable gaps between ProgRock, Krautrock, Radiophonic, IDM, and ambient subgenres of Electronica, with a bit of early '80s New Wave thrown in occasionally for good measure.
